Rick Santorum: Rand Paul Flip-Flops on Israel, Iran

2

santorumFormer Sen. Rick Santorum continued his scathing attack on Sen. Rand Paul on Tuesday as he told Newsmax TV that the Kentucky lawmaker is an endless flip-flopper on his support of Israel and on the threat of Iran.

“He needs to differentiate himself from himself,” Santorum, a Pennsylvania Republican, told “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV.

“He’s suggesting yeah, cut off foreign aid to Israel. I was in Israel just a few weeks ago, and I can tell you the people there are very concerned about this isolationism creeping up within the Republican Party. We see evidence that Rand Paul buys into this idea that Israel is the problem . . . the irritant within the Middle East, and that’s just not where our country needs to be. We need to stand firmly with our allies and understand that the irritant is radical Islam and nothing else.”

“I’ve talked about the importance of our strategic relationship with Israel, the importance of stopping Iran, drawing a bright line, a red line, a real red line well before Iran has a nuclear weapon and not negotiating. This is something I am passionate about because I care deeply about the security threat that Iran and radical Islam poses . . . You can’t blow things up and say the Republican Party is wrong and needs to change and then because it’s evident that that was wrong, sort of put the genie back in the bottle.”

  1. I agree with Santorum and voted for him last time, but unfortunately he just doesn’t have the support of the Republican Party. They think he’s to “right wing” and wont win in the general election. Yeh right. McCain & Romney were real smashing successes. Aha. Most voters in this once great country, are dumb & stupid. They’re to busy watching sports to care about what’s taking place!

  2. Life in the middle east doesnt allow for dilitantism.Those who practice it get their heads handed to them.Israel is Americas’ Aircraft Carrier;Battleship;Navy Army and Airforce whether Rand Paul recognizes it or not.It is the only war machine the arabs still respect.Replacing it would cost US Trllions of $s.There is no place to hide in this world.From here on in lets change Ricks name from Santorum to Sanity
